Hi,
When the file is searched, you'll see it under documents heading. Highlight
the file, press Applications key to enter context menu and select "open file
location."
Cheers,
Joseph

Hello, can someone tell me how to find out where the file is located in the
computer when doing a windows key search? Sometimes I loose an e-mail
without deleting it but I can find it to read by pressing the windows key
and searching for it... The problem is, how do you know where it was
found... Thanks so much... Andy

I'm afraid that Webvisum is gone for good. So if you launch Firefox now, you will get a server connection error and Webvisum will no longer work. This means that as of now, there is no way for us blind computer users to solve image captchas without sighted help.

I think there should be a law that mandates that if you're going to put audio captchas, they need to be where blind people can understand them.

Rose Combs <rosecombs@...>
 

Yes, and Google is a prime example, I spent 30 minutes trying to decipher
their scheme and never got one single letter tried with earphones, turning
up the volume on the computer, tried messing with sound to see if I could
change the pitch or tone and go nowhere at all. I finally just gave up on
it.

Hi all,
Lately I've noticed that there is a new version of the audio captcha; it has
a different voice set against the muffled background noise. I have a
extremely difficult time understanding this new voice; to me it is very
indistinct. It could be that it is just set at a frequency that I can't hear
as well.
I'm wondering if others have noticed this change, and whether others are
also having a difficult time with it?

And, I still come across captcha fields with no audio or other alternatives.

I know we're beginning to stray off topic here, but to me there very
related. It seems like this is a good list to pose such questions too.
Lisa

The final breakdown of webvisum is fairly recent (within the last couple
weeks), if not even closer to the present. Solona has been gone for quite
awhile (at least a year, possibly even two by now).

On 6/20/12, Kane Brolin <kbrolin65@gmail.com> wrote:
Lately I've had fewer problems with the dreaded CAPTCHA than I used to
have, given that more and more sites are building in a form of audible
solution. But recently, while attempting to fill out an e-mail form
in Internet Explorer, I ran across a purely visual CAPTCHA that
prevented me from sending the message. Having used Firefox with
Webvisum previously, I installed Firefox and then installed the
Webvisum add-on--only to find that Webvisum.com is now an inactive
domain and that there is no server at the other end of the equation to
help us solve visual CAPTCHA through this tool.l. Then, to my true
dismay, I looked for Solona and found that this service appears to be
down as well, its domain inactive and for sale.

What have I missed? Maybe I am channeling the spirit of Rip Van
Winkel and have slept through several years. Why are these services
down? Has anything replaced them? or have I just picked a bad night
to do this? As recently as February of 2012, I've noted listserv
entries that make casual reference to Solona and Webvisum.

Thanks to all for any enlightenment you can provide.

Kind regards,

-Kane

Re: What Happened To Popular CAPTCHA Solving Tools?

Really? Have you tried to solve a captcha with Webvisum within the last two days? If so, you would have gotten a server connection error when you launched Firefox. Webvisum is apparently gone for good, as has been widely reported here and on other lists. So I find it hard to believe that it is still working for you but nobody else. Try it again now and tell us whether it is still working.

On your question about applications mode, several JAWS users report that
toggling the virtual cursor off with JAWS key+z restores navigation. I don't
know if it will help complete an online form. If it doesn't work, you could
post again.

Hello, I agree! That new captcha voice is terrible! Also, Why does it say 2

You can thank Mozilla for the demise of Webvisum. They released new versions of Firefox at such an accelerated rate that the Webvisum development team probably grew sick and tired of trying to keep up with them and finally threw in the towel.

Well, the thing to keep in mind with webvisum, until recently the
program was working but there was absolutely no movement on continued
development or support. So I suspect that the site ran however long
it was paid for having been forgotten about long before that. For
whatever reason the developer lost interest (or maybe they died for
all I know).
